Let’s pick out your skateboard deck! This is the best part of the skateboard buying process. If this is your first time buying a skateboard then choose a deck from your favorite skateboard brand, pro skater, or even a graphic you like.
Don’t worry about length or shape at the moment. Decks are organized by width so you can choose a width that meets your needs and aligns with the type of skateboarding you want to do. If you have feet smaller than size 3 you may want to consider a mini deck. Deck width is personal and based on feel.
7.75” to 8.0”: Common deck size that’s great for flip tricks. Ridden by pros such as Rodney Mullen, Boo Johnson, and Eliana Sosco.
8.0” to 8.5”: Most popular deck width, excellent for street skating and parks. Ridden by pros such as Lizzie Armanto, Brad Cromer, and Andrew Reynolds.
8.5” and up: Wider decks are great for transition skating, bigger street tricks, pools, or just cruising. Ridden by pros such as Milton Martinez, Nora Vasconcellos, and Brian Anderson.
All boards seen in the link below, are good for skateboarders of all levels of experience, even pros.
